    Not my answer, but thatsa clever use of archaic spelling for rye.

    Hint: Try a different cocktail.

    PS: Wanted to clue as "poured alcohol into" but wasn't sure if 'alcohol' could appear inside indicator phrase 'poured into'.

    I think that would be ok: word "poured" = the extra word ??

    I was thinking of "poured into" as an indicator phrase. I thought it had better surface, but maybe also confusing -- by sticking fodder inside an indicator like that.

    Could also be that some would read "pouring" letters into another string as yielding "mixed results". Like in this crypt, clued for ye old GRIPES:
